Caller: Caregiving for my Alcoholic Father

Bill called the show to share his struggles with his alcoholic father ...who's now had a fall and requires care.

One of the things we do on the show is educate that alcoholism is a chronic disease - and where there's a chronic disease, there's a caregiver who needs help.

"Not Drinking" doesn't make things better, it's a recovery process for every individual in that alcoholic's /addict's orbit. The closer you are, the more recovery is needed.
